حِينَئِذٍ جَمَعَ سُلَيْمَانُ شُيُوخَ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَكُلَّ رُؤُوسِ ٱلْأَسْبَاطِ، رُؤَسَاءَ ٱلْآبَاءِ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ سُلَيْمَانَ فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، لِإِصْعَادِ تَابُوتِ عَهْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنْ مَدِينَةِ دَاوُدَ، هِيَ صِهْيَوْنُ.١1
Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the ancestral leaders of the children of Israel, to king Solomon in Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the City of David, which is Zion.
فَٱجْتَمَعَ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ سُلَيْمَانَ جَمِيعُ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ٱلْعِيدِ فِي شَهْرِ أَيْثَانِيمَ، هُوَ ٱلشَّهْرُ ٱلسَّابِعُ.٢2
All the men of Israel assembled themselves to king Solomon at the feast, in the month Ethanim, which is the seventh month.
وَجَاءَ جَمِيعُ شُيُوخِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَحَمَلَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ ٱلتَّابُوتَ.٣3
All the elders of Israel came, and the cohanim took up the ark.
وَأَصْعَدُوا تَابُوتَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَخَيْمَةَ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ مَعَ جَمِيعِ آنِيَةِ ٱلْقُدْسِ ٱلَّتِي فِي ٱلْخَيْمَةِ، فَأَصْعَدَهَا ٱلْكَهَنَةُ وَٱللَّاوِيُّونَ.٤4
They brought up the ark of the LORD, and the Tent of Meeting, and all the holy vessels that were in the Tent; and the cohanim and the Levites brought them up.
وَٱلْمَلِكُ سُلَيْمَانُ وَكُلُّ جَمَاعَةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلْمُجْتَمِعِينَ إِلَيْهِ مَعَهُ أَمَامَ ٱلتَّابُوتِ، كَانُوا يَذْبَحُونَ مِنَ ٱلْغَنَمِ وَٱلْبَقَرِ مَا لَا يُحْصَى وَلَا يُعَدُّ مِنَ ٱلْكَثْرَةِ.٥5
King Solomon and all the congregation of Israel, who were assembled to him, were with him before the ark, sacrificing sheep and cattle, that could not be counted nor numbered for multitude.
وَأَدْخَلَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ تَابُوتَ عَهْدِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَى مَكَانِهِ فِي مِحْرَابِ ٱلْبَيْتِ فِي قُدْسِ ٱلْأَقْدَاسِ، إِلَى تَحْتِ جَنَاحَيِ ٱلْكَرُوبَيْنِ،٦6
The cohanim brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD to its place, into the inner sanctuary of the house, to the most holy place, under the wings of the cherubim.
لِأَنَّ ٱلْكَرُوبَيْنِ بَسَطَا أَجْنِحَتَهُمَا عَلَى مَوْضِعِ ٱلتَّابُوتِ، وَظَلَّلَ ٱلْكَرُوبَانِ ٱلتَّابُوتَ وَعِصِيَّهُ مِنْ فَوْقُ.٧7
For the cherubim spread forth their wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubim covered the ark and its poles above.
وَجَذَبُوا ٱلْعِصِيَّ فَتَرَاءَتْ رُؤُوسُ ٱلْعِصِيِّ مِنَ ٱلْقُدْسِ أَمَامَ ٱلْمِحْرَابِ وَلَمْ تُرَ خَارِجًا، وَهِيَ هُنَاكَ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ.٨8
The poles were so long that the ends of the poles were seen from the holy place before the inner sanctuary; but they were not seen outside. And there they are to this day.
لَمْ يَكُنْ فِي ٱلتَّابُوتِ إِلَّا لَوْحَا ٱلْحَجَرِ ٱللَّذَانِ وَضَعَهُمَا مُوسَى هُنَاكَ فِي حُورِيبَ حِينَ عَاهَدَ ٱلرَّبُّ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عِنْدَ خُرُوجِهِمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ.٩9
There was nothing in the ark except the two tablets of stone which Moses put there at Horeb, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt.
وَكَانَ لَمَّا خَرَجَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ مِنَ ٱلْقُدْسِ أَنَّ ٱلسَّحَابَ مَلَأَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ،١٠10
It came to pass, when the cohanim had come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD,
وَلَمْ يَسْتَطِعِ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ أَنْ يَقِفُوا لِلْخِدْمَةِ بِسَبَبِ ٱلسَّحَابِ، لِأَنَّ مَجْدَ ٱلرَّبِّ مَلَأَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ.١١11
so that the cohanim could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud; for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD.
حِينَئِذٍ تَكَلَّمَ سُلَيْمَانُ: «قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِنَّهُ يَسْكُنُ فِي ٱلضَّبَابِ.١٢12
Then Solomon said, "The LORD has said that he would dwell in the thick cloud.
إِنِّي قَدْ بَنَيْتُ لَكَ بَيْتَ سُكْنَى، مَكَانًا لِسُكْنَاكَ إِلَى ٱلْأَبَدِ».١٣13
I have surely built you a house of habitation, a place for you to dwell in forever."
وَحَوَّلَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَجْهَهُ وَبَارَكَ كُلَّ جُمْهُورِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَكُلُّ جُمْهُورِ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَاقِفٌ.١٤14
The king turned his face about, and blessed all the assembly of Israel: and all the assembly of Israel stood.
وَقَالَ: «مُبَارَكٌ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِفَمِهِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ أَبِي وَأَكْمَلَ بِيَدِهِ قَائِلًا:١٥15
He said, "Blessed is the LORD, the God of Israel, who spoke with his mouth to David your father, and has with his hand fulfilled it, saying,
مُنْذُ يَوْمَ أَخْرَجْتُ شَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ مِصْرَ لَمْ أَخْتَرْ مَدِينَةً مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَسْبَاطِ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِبِنَاءِ بَيْتٍ لِيَكُونَ ٱسْمِي هُنَاكَ، بَلِ إِنَّمَا ٱخْتَرْتُ دَاوُدَ لِيَكُونَ عَلَى شَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ.١٦16
'Since the day that I brought my people Israel out of Egypt, I chose no city out of all the tribes of Israel to build a house, that my name might be there, nor did I choose any man to be a leader over my people Israel; but I chose Jerusalem that my name may be there, and I chose David to be over my people Israel.'
وَكَانَ فِي قَلْبِ دَاوُدَ أَبِي أَنْ يَبْنِيَ بَيْتًا لِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ.١٧17
"Now it was in the heart of David my father to build a house for the name of the LORD, the God of Israel.
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِدَاوُدَ أَبِي: مِنْ أَجْلِ أَنَّهُ كَانَ فِي قَلْبِكَ أَنْ تَبْنِيَ بَيْتًا لِٱسْمِي، قَدْ أَحْسَنْتَ بِكَوْنِهِ فِي قَلْبِكَ.١٨18
But the LORD said to David my father, 'Whereas it was in your heart to build a house for my name, you did well that it was in your heart.
إِلَّا إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ لَا تَبْنِي ٱلْبَيْتَ، بَلِ ٱبْنُكَ ٱلْخَارِجُ مِنْ صُلْبِكَ هُوَ يَبْنِي ٱلْبَيْتَ لِٱسْمِي.١٩19
Nevertheless, you shall not build the house; but your son who shall come forth out of your body, he shall build the house for my name.'
وَأَقَامَ ٱلرَّبُّ كَلَامَهُ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ، وَقَدْ قُمْتُ أَنَا مَكَانَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي وَجَلَسْتُ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ كَمَا تَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ، وَبَنَيْتُ ٱلْبَيْتَ لِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ،٢٠20
The LORD has established his word that he spoke; for I have risen up in the place of David my father, and I sit on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and have built the house for the name of the LORD, the God of Israel.
وَجَعَلْتُ هُنَاكَ مَكَانًا لِلتَّابُوتِ ٱلَّذِي فِيهِ عَهْدُ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي قَطَعَهُ مَعَ آبَائِنَا عِنْدَ إِخْرَاجِهِ إِيَّاهُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِ مِصْرَ».٢١21
There I have set a place for the ark, in which is the covenant of the LORD, which he made with our fathers, when he brought them out of the land of Egypt."
وَوَقَفَ سُلَيْمَانُ أَمَامَ مَذْبَحِ ٱلرَّبِّ تُجَاهَ كُلِّ جَمَاعَةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَبَسَطَ يَدَيْهِ إِلَى ٱلسَّمَاءِ٢٢22
Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the assembly of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven. Now Solomon had made a bronze scaffold, eight feet and seven inches long, and eight feet and seven inches broad, and five feet and two inches high, and had set it in the midst of the court; and on it he stood, and kneeled down on his knees before all the assembly of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven.
وَقَالَ: «أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ، لَيْسَ إِلَهٌ مِثْلَكَ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ مِنْ فَوْقُ، وَلَا عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ مِنْ أَسْفَلُ، حَافِظُ ٱلْعَهْدِ وَٱلرَّحْمَةِ لِعَبِيدِكَ ٱلسَّائِرِينَ أَمَامَكَ بِكُلِّ قُلُوبِهِمْ.٢٣23
And he said, "LORD, the God of Israel, there is no God like you, in heaven above, or on earth beneath; keeping covenant and loving kindness with your servants, who walk before you with all their heart;
ٱلَّذِي قَدْ حَفِظْتَ لِعَبْدِكَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي مَا كَلَّمْتَهُ بِهِ، فَتَكَلَّمْتَ بِفَمِكَ وَأَكْمَلْتَ بِيَدِكَ كَهَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ.٢٤24
who have kept with your servant David my father that which you promised him. Yes, you spoke with your mouth, and have fulfilled it with your hand, as it is this day.
وَٱلْآنَ أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱحْفَظْ لِعَبْدِكَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي مَا كَلَّمْتَهُ بِهِ قَائِلًا: لَا يُعْدَمُ لَكَ أَمَامِي رَجُلٌ يَجْلِسُ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ، إِنْ كَانَ بَنُوكَ إِنَّماَ يَحْفَظُونَ طُرُقَهُمْ حَتَّى يَسِيرُوا أَمَامِي كَمَا سِرْتَ أَنْتَ أَمَامِي.٢٥25
Now therefore, may the LORD, the God of Israel, keep with your servant David my father that which you have promised him, saying, 'There shall not fail you a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel, if only your children take heed to their way, to walk before me as you have walked before me.'
وَٱلْآنَ يَا إِلَهَ إِسْرَائِيلَ فَلْيَتَحَقَّقْ كَلَامُكَ ٱلَّذِي كَلَّمْتَ بِهِ عَبْدَكَ دَاوُدَ أَبِي.٢٦26
"Now therefore, LORD, God of Israel, please let your word be verified, which you spoke to your servant David my father.
لِأَنَّهُ هَلْ يَسْكُنُ ٱللهُ حَقًّا عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ؟ هُوَذَا ٱلسَّمَاوَاتُ وَسَمَاءُ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ لَا تَسَعُكَ، فَكَمْ بِٱلْأَقَلِّ هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتُ ٱلَّذِي بَنَيْتُ؟٢٧27
But will God in very deed dwell on the earth? Look, heaven and the heaven of heavens can't contain you; how much less this house that I have built.
فَٱلْتَفِتْ إِلَى صَلَاةِ عَبْدِكَ وَإِلَى تَضَرُّعِهِ أَيُّهَا ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهِي، وَٱسْمَعِ ٱلصُّرَاخَ وَٱلصَّلَاةَ ٱلَّتِي يُصَلِّيهَا عَبْدُكَ أَمَامَكَ ٱلْيَوْمَ.٢٨28
Yet have respect for the prayer of your servant, and for his petition, LORD my God, to listen to the cry and to the prayer which your servant prays before you this day;
لِتَكُونَ عَيْنَاكَ مَفْتُوحَتَيْنِ عَلَى هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ لَيْلًا وَنَهَارًا، عَلَى ٱلْمَوْضِعِ ٱلَّذِي قُلْتَ: إِنَّ ٱسْمِي يَكُونُ فِيهِ، لِتَسْمَعَ ٱلصَّلَاةَ ٱلَّتِي يُصَلِّيهَا عَبْدُكَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعِ.٢٩29
that your eyes may be open toward this house night and day, even toward the place of which you have said, 'My name shall be there;' to listen to the prayer which your servant shall pray toward this place.
وَٱسْمَعْ تَضَرُّعَ عَبْدِكَ وَشَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِينَ يُصَلُّونَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعِ، وَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ فِي مَوْضِعِ سُكْنَاكَ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ، وَإِذَا سَمِعْتَ فَٱغْفِرْ.٣٠30
Listen to the petition of your servant, and of your people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place. Yes, hear in heaven, your dwelling place; and when you hear, forgive.
إِذَا أَخْطَأَ أَحَدٌ إِلَى صَاحِبِهِ وَوَضَعَ عَلَيْهِ حَلْفًا لِيُحَلِّفَهُ، وَجَاءَ ٱلْحَلْفُ أَمَامَ مَذْبَحِكَ فِي هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ،٣١31
"If a man sins against his neighbor, and an oath is laid on him to cause him to swear, and he comes and swear before your altar in this house;
فَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَٱعْمَلْ وَٱقْضِ بَيْنَ عَبِيدِكَ، إِذْ تَحْكُمُ عَلَى ٱلْمُذْنِبِ فَتَجْعَلُ طَرِيقَهُ عَلَى رَأْسِهِ، وَتُبَرِّرُ ٱلْبَارَّ إِذْ تُعْطِيهِ حَسَبَ بِرِّهِ.٣٢32
then hear in heaven, and do, and judge your servants, condemning the wicked, to bring his way on his own head, and justifying the righteous, to give him according to his righteousness.
إِذَا ٱنْكَسَرَ شَعْبُكَ إِسْرَائِيلُ أَمَامَ ٱلْعَدُوِّ لِأَنَّهُمْ أَخْطَأُوا إِلَيْكَ، ثُمَّ رَجَعُوا إِلَيْكَ وَٱعْتَرَفُوا بِٱسْمِكَ وَصَلَّوْا وَتَضَرَّعُوا إِلَيْكَ نَحْوَ هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ،٣٣33
"When your people Israel are struck down before the enemy, because they have sinned against you; if they turn again to you, and confess your name, and pray and make petition to you in this house:
فَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَٱغْفِرْ خَطِيَّةَ شَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَأَرْجِعْهُمْ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتَهَا لِآبَائِهِمْ.٣٤34
then hear in heaven, and forgive the sin of your people Israel, and bring them again to the land which you gave to their fathers.
«إِذَا أُغْلِقَتِ ٱلسَّمَاءُ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ مَطَرٌ، لِأَنَّهُمْ أَخْطَأُوا إِلَيْكَ، ثُمَّ صَلَّوْا فِي هَذَا ٱلْمَوْضِعِ وَٱعْتَرَفُوا بِٱسْمِكَ، وَرَجَعُوا عَنْ خَطِيَّتِهِمْ لِأَنَّكَ ضَايَقْتَهُمْ،٣٥35
"When the sky is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against you; if they pray toward this place, and confess your name, and turn from their sin, when you punish them:
فَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَٱغْفِرْ خَطِيَّةَ عَبِيدِكَ وَشَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَتُعَلِّمَهُمُ ٱلطَّرِيقَ ٱلصَّالِحَ ٱلَّذِي يَسْلُكُونَ فِيهِ، وَأَعْطِ مَطَرًا عَلَى أَرْضِكَ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتَهَا لِشَعْبِكَ مِيرَاثًا.٣٦36
then hear in heaven, and forgive the sin of your servants, and of your people Israel, when you teach them the good way in which they should walk; and send rain on your land, which you have given to your people for an inheritance.
إِذَا صَارَ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ جُوعٌ، إِذَا صَارَ وَبَأٌ، إِذَا صَارَ لَفْحٌ أَوْ يَرَقَانٌ أَوْ جَرَادٌ جَرْدَمٌ، أَوْ إِذَا حَاصَرَهُ عَدُوُّهُ فِي أَرْضِ مُدُنِهِ، فِي كُلِّ ضَرْبَةٍ وَكُلِّ مَرَضٍ،٣٧37
"If there is famine in the land, if there is pestilence, if there is blight, mildew, locust or caterpillar; if their enemy besieges them in the land of their gates; whatever plague, whatever sickness there is;
فَكُلُّ صَلَاةٍ وَكُلُّ تَضَرُّعٍ تَكُونُ مِنْ أَيِّ إِنْسَانٍ كَانَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، ٱلَّذِينَ يَعْرِفُونَ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ ضَرْبَةَ قَلْبِهِ، فَيَبْسُطُ يَدَيْهِ نَحْوَ هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ،٣٨38
whatever prayer and petition is made by any man, or by all your people Israel, who shall each know the plague of his own heart, and spread forth his hands toward this house:
فَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ مَكَانِ سُكْنَاكَ وَٱغْفِرْ، وَٱعْمَلْ وَأَعْطِ كُلَّ إِنْسَانٍ حَسَبَ كُلِّ طُرُقِهِ كَمَا تَعْرِفُ قَلْبَهُ. لِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ وَحْدَكَ قَدْ عَرَفْتَ قُلُوبَ كُلِّ بَنِي ٱلْبَشَرِ،٣٩39
then hear in heaven, your dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and render to every man according to all his ways, whose heart you know; (for you, even you only, know the hearts of all the children of men; )
لِكَيْ يَخَافُوكَ كُلَّ ٱلْأَيَّامِ ٱلَّتِي يَحْيَوْنَ فِيهَا عَلَى وَجْهِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتَ لِآبَائِنَا.٤٠40
that they may fear you all the days that they live in the land which you gave to our fathers.
وَكَذَلِكَ ٱلْأَجْنَبِيُّ ٱلَّذِي لَيْسَ مِنْ شَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ هُوَ، وَجَاءَ مِنْ أَرْضٍ بَعِيدَةٍ مِنْ أَجْلِ ٱسْمِكَ،٤١41
"Moreover concerning the foreigner, who is not of your people Israel, when he shall come out of a far country for your name's sake
لِأَنَّهُمْ يَسْمَعُونَ بِٱسْمِكَ ٱلْعَظِيمِ وَبِيَدِكَ ٱلْقَوِيَّةِ وَذِرَاعِكَ ٱلْمَمْدُودَةِ، فَمَتَى جَاءَ وَصَلَّى فِي هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ،٤٢42
(for they shall hear of your great name, and of your mighty hand, and of your outstretched arm); when he shall come and pray toward this house;
فَٱسْمَعْ أَنْتَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ مَكَانِ سُكْنَاكَ، وَٱفْعَلْ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا يَدْعُو بِهِ إِلَيْكَ ٱلْأَجْنَبِيُّ، لِكَيْ يَعْلَمَ كُلُّ شُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱسْمَكَ، فَيَخَافُوكَ كَشَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَلِكَيْ يَعْلَمُوا أَنَّهُ قَدْ دُعِيَ ٱسْمُكَ عَلَى هَذَا ٱلْبَيْتِ ٱلَّذِي بَنَيْتُ.٤٣43
then hear in heaven, your dwelling place, and do according to all that the foreigner calls to you for; that all the peoples of the earth may know your name, and fear you, as do your people Israel, and that they may know that this house which I have built is called by your name.
«إِذَا خَرَجَ شَعْبُكَ لِمُحَارَبَةِ عَدُوِّهِ فِي ٱلطَّرِيقِ ٱلَّذِي تُرْسِلُهُمْ فِيهِ، وَصَلَّوْا إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ نَحْوَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ ٱلَّتِي ٱخْتَرْتَهَا وَٱلْبَيْتِ ٱلَّذِي بَنَيْتُهُ لِٱسْمِكَ،٤٤44
"If your people go out to battle against their enemy, by whatever way you shall send them, and they pray to the LORD toward the city which you have chosen, and toward the house which I have built for your name;
فَٱسْمَعْ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ صَلَاتَهُمْ وَتَضَرُّعَهُمْ وَٱقْضِ قَضَاءَهُمْ.٤٥45
then hear in heaven their prayer and their petition, and maintain their cause.
إِذَا أَخْطَأُوا إِلَيْكَ، لِأَنَّهُ لَيْسَ إِنْسَانٌ لَا يُخْطِئُ، وَغَضِبْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَدَفَعْتَهُمْ أَمَامَ ٱلْعَدُوِّ وَسَبَاهُمْ، سَابُوهُمْ إِلَى أَرْضِ ٱلْعَدُوِّ، بَعِيدَةً أَوْ قَرِيبَةً،٤٦46
If they sin against you (for there is no man who doesn't sin), and you are angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captive to the land of the enemy, far off or near;
فَإِذَا رَدُّوا إِلَى قُلُوبِهِمْ فِي ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِي يُسْبَوْنَ إِلَيْهَا وَرَجَعُوا وَتَضَرَّعُوا إِلَيْكَ فِي أَرْضِ سَبْيِهِمْ قَائِلِينَ: قَدْ أَخْطَأْنَا وَعَوَّجْنَا وَأَذْنَبْنَا.٤٧47
yet if they shall repent in the land where they are carried captive, and repent and make petition to you in the land of those who carried them captive, saying, 'We have sinned, and have done perversely; we have dealt wickedly;'
وَرَجَعُوا إِلَيْكَ مِنْ كُلِّ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَمِنْ كُلِّ أَنْفُسِهِمْ فِي أَرْضِ أَعْدَائِهِمْ ٱلَّذِينَ سَبَوْهُمْ، وَصَلَّوْا إِلَيْكَ نَحْوَ أَرْضِهِمْ ٱلَّتِي أَعْطَيْتَ لِآبَائِهِمْ، نَحْوَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ ٱلَّتِي ٱخْتَرْتَ وَٱلْبَيْتِ ٱلَّذِي بَنَيْتُ لِٱسْمِكَ،٤٨48
if they return to you with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their enemies, who carried them captive, and pray to you toward their land, which you gave to their fathers, the city which you have chosen, and the house which I have built for your name:
فَٱسْمَعْ فِي ٱلسَّمَاءِ مَكَانِ سُكْنَاكَ صَلَاتَهُمْ وَتَضَرُّعَهُمْ وَٱقْضِ قَضَاءَهُمْ،٤٩49
then hear their prayer and their petition in heaven, your dwelling place, and maintain their cause;
وَٱغْفِرْ لِشَعْبِكَ مَا أَخْطَأُوا بِهِ إِلَيْكَ، وَجَمِيعَ ذُنُوبِهِمِ ٱلَّتِي أَذْنَبُوا بِهَا إِلَيْكَ، وَأَعْطِهِمْ رَحْمَةً أَمَامَ ٱلَّذِينَ سَبَوْهُمْ فَيَرْحَمُوهُمْ،٥٠50
and forgive your people who have sinned against you, and all their transgressions in which they have transgressed against you; and give them compassion before those who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them
لِأَنَّهُمْ شَعْبُكَ وَمِيرَاثُكَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَخْرَجْتَ مِنْ مِصْرَ، مِنْ وَسَطِ كُورِ ٱلْحَدِيدِ.٥١51
(for they are your people, and your inheritance, which you brought out of Egypt, from the midst of the iron furnace);
لِتَكُونَ عَيْنَاكَ مَفْتُوحَتَيْنِ نَحْوَ تَضَرُّعِ عَبْدِكَ وَتَضَرُّعِ شَعْبِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَتُصْغِيَ إِلَيْهِمْ فِي كُلِّ مَا يَدْعُونَكَ،٥٢52
that your eyes and your ears may be open to the petition of your servant, and to the petition of your people Israel, to listen to them whenever they cry to you.
لِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ أَفْرَزْتَهُمْ لَكَ مِيرَاثًا مِنْ جَمِيعِ شُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، كَمَا تَكَلَّمْتَ عَنْ يَدِ مُوسَى عَبْدِكَ عِنْدَ إِخْرَاجِكَ آبَاءَنَا مِنْ مِصْرَ يَاسَيِّدِي ٱلرَّبَّ».٥٣53
For you separated them from among all the peoples of the earth, to be your inheritance, as you spoke by Moses your servant, when you brought our fathers out of Egypt, Lord GOD."
وَكَانَ لَمَّا ٱنْتَهَى سُلَيْمَانُ مِنَ ٱلصَّلَاةِ إِلَى ٱلرَّبِّ بِكُلِّ هَذِهِ ٱلصَّلَاةِ وَٱلتَّضَرُّعِ، أَنَّهُ نَهَضَ مِنْ أَمَامِ مَذْبَحِ ٱلرَّبِّ، مِنَ ٱلْجُثُوِّ عَلَى رُكْبَتَيْهِ، وَيَدَاهُ مَبْسُوطَتَانِ نَحْوَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ،٥٤54
It was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and petition to the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread forth toward heaven.
وَوَقَفَ وَبَارَكَ كُلَّ جَمَاعَةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ بِصَوْتٍ عَالٍ قَائِلًا:٥٥55
He stood, and blessed all the assembly of Israel with a loud voice, saying,
«مُبَارَكٌ ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي أَعْطَى رَاحَةً لِشَعْبِهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ، وَلَمْ تَسْقُطْ كَلِمَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ مِنْ كُلِّ كَلَامِهِ ٱلصَّالِحِ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ عَنْ يَدِ مُوسَى عَبْدِهِ.٥٦56
"Blessed be the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel, according to all that he promised. There has not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by Moses his servant.
لِيَكُنِ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُنَا مَعَنَا كَمَا كَانَ مَعَ آبَائِنَا فَلَا يَتْرُكَنَا وَلَا يَرْفُضَنَا.٥٧57
May the LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers. Let him not leave us, nor forsake us;
لِيَمِيلَ بِقُلُوبِنَا إِلَيْهِ لِكَيْ نَسِيرَ فِي جَمِيعِ طُرُقِهِ وَنَحْفَظَ وَصَايَاهُ وَفَرَائِضَهُ وَأَحْكَامَهُ ٱلَّتِي أَوْصَى بِهَا آبَاءَنَا.٥٨58
that he may incline our hearts to him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his ordinances, which he commanded our fathers.
وَلِيَكُنْ كَلَامِي هَذَا ٱلَّذِي تَضَرَّعْتُ بِهِ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ قَرِيبًا مِنَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا نَهَارًا وَلَيْلًا، لِيَقْضِيَ قَضَاءَ عَبْدِهِ وَقَضَاءَ شَعْبِهِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، أَمْرَ كُلِّ يَوْمٍ فِي يَوْمِهِ.٥٩59
Let these my words, with which I have made petition before the LORD, be near to the LORD our God day and night, that he may maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel, as every day shall require;
لِيَعْلَمَ كُلُّ شُعُوبِ ٱلْأَرْضِ أَنَّ ٱلرَّبَّ هُوَ ٱللهُ وَلَيْسَ آخَرُ.٦٠60
that all the peoples of the earth may know that the LORD, he is God. There is no other.
فَلْيَكُنْ قَلْبُكُمْ كَامِلًا لَدَى ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا إِذْ تَسِيرُونَ فِي فَرَائِضِهِ وَتَحْفَظُونَ وَصَايَاهُ كَهَذَا ٱلْيَوْمِ».٦١61
"Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day."
ثُمَّ إِنَّ ٱلْمَلِكَ وَجَمِيعَ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ ذَبَحُوا ذَبَائِحَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ،٦٢62
The king, and all Israel with him, offered sacrifice before the LORD.
وَذَبَحَ سُلَيْمَانُ ذَبَائِحَ ٱلسَّلَامَةِ ٱلَّتِي ذَبَحَهَا لِلرَّبِّ: مِنَ ٱلْبَقَرِ ٱثْنَيْنِ وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفًا، وَمِنَ ٱلْغَنَمِ مِئَةَ أَلْفٍ وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفًا، فَدَشَّنَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَجَمِيعُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ بَيْتَ ٱلرَّبِّ.٦٣63
Solomon offered for the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he offered to the LORD, two and twenty thousand head of cattle, and one hundred twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the children of Israel dedicated the house of the LORD.
فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ قَدَّسَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَسَطَ ٱلدَّارِ ٱلَّتِي أَمَامَ بَيْتِ ٱلرَّبِّ، لِأَنَّهُ قَرَّبَ هُنَاكَ ٱلْمُحْرَقَاتِ وَٱلتَّقْدِمَاتِ وَشَحْمَ ذَبَائِحِ ٱلسَّلَامَةِ، لِأَنَّ مَذْبَحَ ٱلنُّحَاسِ ٱلَّذِي أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ كَانَ صَغِيرًا عَنْ أَنْ يَسَعَ ٱلْمُحْرَقَاتِ وَٱلتَّقْدِمَاتِ وَشَحْمَ ذَبَائِحِ ٱلسَّلَامَةِ.٦٤64
The same day the king made the middle of the court holy that was before the house of the LORD; for there he offered the burnt offering, and the meal offering, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the bronze altar that was before the LORD was too little to receive the burnt offering, and the meal offering, and the fat of the peace offerings.
وَعَيَّدَ سُلَيْمَانُ ٱلْعِيدَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْوَقْتِ وَجَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مَعَهُ، جُمْهُورٌ كَبِيرٌ مِنْ مَدْخَلِ حَمَاةَ إِلَى وَادِي مِصْرَ، أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ إِلَهِنَا سَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ وَسَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ، أَرْبَعَةَ عَشَرَ يَوْمًا.٦٥65
So Solomon held the feast at that time, and all Israel with him, a great assembly, from Lebo Hamath to the Wadi of Egypt, before the LORD our God in the house which he built, eating and drinking and rejoicing before the LORD our God seven days and seven days; fourteen days.
وَفِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّامِنِ صَرَفَ ٱلشَّعْبَ، فَبَارَكُوا ٱلْمَلِكَ وَذَهَبُوا إِلَى خِيَمِهِمْ فَرِحِينَ وَطَيِّبِي ٱلْقُلُوبِ، لِأَجْلِ كُلِّ ٱلْخَيْرِ ٱلَّذِي عَمِلَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِدَاوُدَ عَبْدِهِ وَلِإِسْرَائِيلَ شَعْبِهِ.٦٦66
And on the eighth day he sent the people away; and they blessed the king, and went to their tents joyful and glad of heart for all the goodness that the LORD had shown to David his servant, and to Israel his people.
